who we are
Welcome to the website for First Baptist Church of Clayton, North Carolina. We are located at 411 N. Fayetteville St. Clayton, North Carolina. First Baptist Church has a distinguished past and a promising future. It is a church proud of her heritage and aware of her responsibility to share Christ in the twenty-first century.
Our church programs are designed to involve people of all ages in the life and ministry of the church. We invite you to use this website to locate information about the various ministries that we provide.
At the First Baptist Church of Clayton we are proud of our heritage, but the past is not the focus of our attention. We strongly believe that God has called us to meet the needs of this generation through Biblical instruction and deep personal relationships.
God has given a renewed vision in our hearts to become known in the Clayton area
as a caring community of believers that seeks to transform lives through a clear
witness for Christ, quality programming, and the lifestyle of each believer.
First Baptist is affiliated with both the Southern Baptist Convention and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship on a national level. Our affiliations also extend to the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of North Carolina, and the Johnston Baptist Association. We have a wide choice of ministry opportunities and numerous programs that cater to all ages. We've highlighted many of these on this website and invite you to participate.
Our world is far different than it was in 1811 when our church was founded. And yet, in many ways it is still the same. People still need the message of Christ's love and they still respond warmly to a caring community. Regardless of position or station, all are equal in His eyes. All are welcome to worship the King of kings and Lord of lords here at First Baptist Church of Clayton.
If you are looking for a church home, consider becoming involved in our church family by serving the Lord with us.
